Central Europe, Bohemia especially, has been an important mining center since the late-middle ages and the source of some of Europe's earliest mining laws. Originally local, Central European mining law became more Germanic over time through the authority of the Holy Roman Empire. Span's treatise summarizes this body of law with an emphasis on the enactments of Holy Roman Emperors, and Kings of Hungary, Bohemia and Croatia, Ferdinand I and Rudolf II. Among other topics, Span considers the demarcation of territory, drainage, ventilation and the division of expenses and profits among investors.
